6:00pm
sometime this evening. the board of supervisors is now in its fourth hour of deliberations in what many believe will be a marathon session. jean elle is live in san francisco. you've been following the story from the beginning. you've been hearing the answers and questions. what kind of vibe are you getting which may this may go? >> reporter: they are directing questions at people representing people on both sides and they're not indicating how they're going to vote when asking questions. the board right now is listening to public comment and considering two hours of arguments, questions about the definition of official misconduct and if it applies before a person is sworn in. the mayor initiated this process after the sheriff pleaded guilty to a domestic violence incident.
6:01pm
that happened before he was sworn in as sheriff. the ethics commission did vote 4-1 to uphold the charge. the former san francisco mayor saying trying to remove him from office is an abuse of power. but the attorney's office says he's not fit to be sheriff while on probation. >> a sentence to a day in the jail he runs, sentenced to probation next to the other folks that he's letting out of jail. >> most of all, this case is about unprecedented mayoral power, claiming the discretion to charge any elected official in this city with official misconduct, with or without a confiction and on a case by case basis. >> reporter: 9 of the 11
6:02pm
supervisors must vote to uphold the charge to be removed from office. otherwise he'll be reinstated. members of the board of supervisor also deliberate and discuss their position and vote. we'll have an update at 11:00. jean elle, nbc bay area news. new tonight at 6:00, they're used in military combat, but now aerial drones are being considered by law enforcement as a cost-cutting way to use technology to fight crime and save lives. stephanie is live with the details. there are fears that the use of these drones could be an invasion of privacy. >> reporter: that's right, concerns over privacy sand civil rights. the sheriff's office is the one dringing this idea up, and it is very preliminary at this point. but here is a picture of a thrown that they tested just two months ago, that the office
6:03pm
tested two months ago. a handful of law enforcement agencies in the country have gotten federal approval to use them. and if the sheriff's office does so, it would be the first in california. >> you'll be able to see what the drone is seeing as it's flying. >> reporter: at four pounds and four feet wide, this drone gets a bird's-eye view that officers on the ground are often blind to. >> it can save lives. >> reporter: in this demonstration in dub lick, it's a man standing in the shadows on a roof top with explosives in his reach. >> near priceless. it's valuable to any officer, as you're setting up your perimeters and knowing what the suspect may have in his hands, how the suspect is dressed, what are the avs of escape. >> reporter: the sheriff says his office would only use them during emergencies. >> pursuing a suspect on foot or pursuing a vehicle in an area or
6:04pm
search and rescue or disaster. >> reporter: and for proactive policing like catching marijuana fields on public lands. >> they do have infrared capacity. you would be able to see what the drone is seeing as it's flying. >> reporter: but not everyone is a fan. the aclu only wants them deployed when there's a warrant. >> reporter: but the sheriff says an arm ee eed drone is out the question. >> i think it's a no-brainer. >> reporter: in two weeks, the sheriff's office is hosting urban shield, that's a preparedness exercise involving about 30 local law enforcement agencies and they will be testing out a couple of drones to see how they do in real life situations. or simulations i should say.
6:05pm
they cost about $50,000 to $100,000 each. the sheriff says he has looked into a federal grant that promotes community policing to see if that could pay for it here in alameda county. >> interesting concept. thank you, stephanie. horrifying. absolutely horrifying. an antioch crossing card, her child, a parent all injured today by a driver police say was speeding and weaving in and out of traffic. police say that driver plowed through the intersection near turner elementary school this morning. it hit a car and three people standing on the corner. the adults were severely injured. the child is expected to recover. the driver and passenger got out and ran. they're amazed that more people weren't hurt by this. >> i was walking to the light where the green thing is, and she saw me and she pushed the button and all of a sudden i
6:06pm
hear and feel this right in front of my face. >> reporter: what did you see? >> the car hit them head-on. they went flying through the air. just hit them, bam. >> reporter: no brakes, nothing? >> no. going as fast as he could. >> reporter: police do say the man who identified himself as the driver did come back and he was taken into comedy. however, they are still looking for the passenger two has an outstanding warrant. police are investigating whether they were intoxicated. they didn't go up but didn't go down yesterday. the average price of gas here in california is still at a record high for the state and it's the highest in the nation at $4.67. farmers in the central valley say that's putting pressure on the bottom lines when it comes to rising fuel cost, they get hit with a double whammy. farmers are spending more to refuel farm equipment and having to pay fuel surcharges to drivedrive ers transporting produce.
6:07pm
you've probably given this thought yourself. how much money can someone expect to reasonably live on in silicon valley? now it's a question voters in san jose will be facing in november when they decide whether or not to boost the minimum wage from $8 to $10. while many businesses worry they'll have to lay off employees if it passes, especially in light of a new report. sam brock tests the validity of those claims. >> reporter: good evening. economic experts forecast hardship if measure d is passed. hundreds, if not thousands of job losses. but a closer look at the city and states that have raised their minimum wages paints a picture of more job growth and lower unemployment. if there's an old adage that change tends to happen inkrementally, boosting the minimum wage in san jose would be a quick and deadly thrust.
6:08pm
to small businesses. >> this downtown is already struggling as it is. for them to add apextra burden makes no sense to me. >> reporter: now as the owner of a restaurant, he says he understands the economy of running a business. boost the minimum wage and he says jobs will be lost, benefits shaved and companies displaced. but is that true? >> it wasn't until we got the report that we decided you know what? this supports our position like we thought it would. >> reporter: matt mayhood says an independent report the group just commissioned forecasts between 600 and 2800 jobs loft if this passes. >> if you're a small business, a 25% increase in your payroll is significant and it could harm your business so what do you do?
6:09pm
reduce hours or layoff people. >> reporter: most recently, washington, d.c. and san francisco tried this measure. when san francisco created a new minimum wage, unemployment has fallen by 0.7%. and in washington, d.c., unemployment has fallen by 1.3%. >> san jose is not san francisco and washington, d.c. we are ringed by other cities. we have business districts that are one street across from each other. >> reporter: so let's expand the scope here. in 2012, eight states increased their minimum wage and here's how they faired so far. only in colorado has unemployment risen by 0.4%. the other seven states have seen falling rates. florida's by 1. 1%. in ohio and arizona, 0.7%.
6:10pm
regardless of what happens to job numbers, detractors point out that city hall will have to create a new bureaucracy to enforce the new minimum wage at a cost to taxpayers of $600,000. and mayhood says comparing san jose to san francisco, washington, d.c., or even other states is apples to oranges. the city, he says, faces its own unique problems. you can decide for yourself on election day in a few weeks. back to you. >> thank you very much, sam. still ahead at 6:00, do or die for the san francisco giants. coming up, complete coverage as they look to stay alive against the reds. plus -- >> i'm scott budman. a celebration for a bay area company that's probably on your mobile disease. the secret to their success, coming up. the local food bank that says some people may go hungry because of bad math by the government. >> and good evening.
6:11pm

6:13pm
president obama shifted his campaign focus to ohio tonight. he left with a war chest $3.2 million fatter after the fund-raiser last night. republican nominee mitt romney passed mr. obama in the gallop survey. at uc davis, a high profile rally featuring bill clinton demonstrated how important both parties consider california's congressional races. mr. clinton was there to boost the profiles of sacramento area
6:14pm
incumbe incumbents, as well as two challengers who hope to unseat republicans. before his student audience, clinton hammered hard on the value of mr. obama's student loan reform program which a romney white house would repeal. >> when you, like every previous generation of young persons, when you can afford to repay your loans, you do it virtually every time, so the taxpayers save money, so making it possible to repay your loans means more of you will. >> he told this one issue alone could change the future of the u.s. the san francisco food bank is reeling from an unexpected funding cut. we show you why it's only one of the only bay area counties to miss out on badly needed federal funds.
6:15pm
>> it's bread, vegetables and eggs for breakfast. >> reporter: gonzalez orders food for san francisco's lutheran social services, which gives away food to 85 needy families every thursday. >> it's their monthly staple. and we distribute every thursday. without this food, they wouldn't have food for the week. >> reporter: now san francisco's food bank, which supplies hundreds of groups across san francisco, is finding itself in need. >> for the second year in a row, the national fema board has not made a direct application to the city of san francisco. >> reporter: paul ashe says for two years, the government has used a formula based on up employment and poverty rates to determine funding. san francisco did not qualify. >> we estimate to be about $160,000, which is enough food
6:16pm
because of our buying power and donations to bring about 450 meals or food for those meals to san francisco. >> reporter: he says the formula unfairly reflects on san francisco because it's both city and a pointy. statistics don't tell the whole story. >> we have well over 100,000 people at or below the poverty line here in san francisco. >> reporter: he says the food bank will try to make up funding from individual donors with hopes that people like gonzalez won't find the shelves bare. a sea lion with fishing lion wrapped around his neck has been rescued from a floating platform in san francisco. but a second sea lion managed to slip into the water before a team could catch it. by standers who saw the troubled animals notified the marine animal center. it sent a crew to sedate the sea
6:17pm
lion to load him on a truck. they named him blonde bomber. tonight, a spokeswoman says the animal is doing well and will have the fishing line removed tomorrow. the shuttle "endeavor" is used to being in the air, but its next journey will be on the ground. >> hauling something that big takes some extra work underground. conan nolan shows us how it will happen. >> reporter: this is exposition park. when the shuttle is taken here through the south lawn of the museum of natural history, it will take this path they have laid out, making its way into the air and space center. now, this is unlike any trip ever taken by a space shuttle. laying down a carpet of steel along martin luther king bull yard.
6:18pm
2700 one inch plates placed along the route the space shuttle will take. >> we're getting these from southern california, arizona, las vegas and san diego. >> reporter: normally used to cover trenches, they are enlisting them to help protect underground pipelines. >> the steel distributes the weight. it will protect the infrastructure underneath the ground. >> reporter: and the final adventure at the speed of a slow walk starts friday morning. the work being done by four mobile transporters used for moving very large objects. >> there's 80 wheels and each wheel can move independently, but they're all computer controlled so they can move in one direction or move right angles and turn around on itself. they walk along with it, so we
6:19pm
go no faster than someone can walk. we keep hearing from people where can they see it best. >> i'm going to be right here as soon as it passes. >> i'm very excited. >> how about you? >> i'm very excited to see it in person. >> i live right down the street and i can come over here and see it. >> reporter: to be honest, the distribution on the 80 wheels is enough to distribute the weight. so they're probably wouldn't be a problem. the metal plates are putting down just in case. they're hoping midnight friday, they hope to have the shuttle in its new home by saturday night around 10:00. conan nolan, reporting live at the california science center. >> if you miss it, you can always go see it at the museum. >> we saw it fly by here a couple weeks ago.
6:20pm
and it was a beautiful day today. let's check in with jeff ranieri. >> scanning the sky, getting the best pictures. cloud cover we had developing and look at the fall colors out across the bay area. thank you so much for that picture and for sharing this today. go to our website or twitter if you want to send us the pictures. otherwise, low 70s in the north bay. 69 in san francisco. the warmest temperature today was gilroy at 80. 75 in livermore and 73 in concord. overall right now, what you're noticing across all of california is temperatures are dropping even in the desert. 85 in palm springs and 60s from monterey to san francisco with low 60s right now. 65 in sunnyvale and 65 in gilroy. so temperatures definitely feeling autumn like here. when you think about where we were this time last week, we were 30 to 40 degrees colder at
6:21pm
this hour. we did have those upper 90s and low 100s. let's go live outside. you can see the cloud cover overhead. no rainfall yet here in the south bay. taking you up to san francisco and a mix of sun and clouds. for days, the radar loops around, it's moving from the south to the north, it's having a hard time pushing in here. note this, showers are only about 30 to 40 miles away from bodega bay, so no big rainfall tonight. but the next 48 hours, we can't rule out isolated showers. primarily as this area of low pressure pushes off to the south, looking at coastal fog, not only isolated showers in the forecast, but maybe even some of the first snowfall expected in yosemite. tonight, all of that rainfall remains offshore throughout the south. tomorrow, models picking up
6:22pm
shower activity in the south bay. and by thursday, if you're headed anywhere near yosemite, maybe one to two inches of snowfall. not expected to be much, but a huge departure over what we've had. tomorrow's daytime highs, mid 60s at the coastline. upper 60s at the bay. we'll have more coming up in the full seven-day forecast on a second system this week by friday. ladies? >> thanks, jeff. we have breaking news. some great news. the giants just won their game, game three against the cincinnati reds, 2-1 in ten innings. now they advance to game four also in cincinnati tomorrow. >> we were all very nervous. stand down, everybody, we have another game to go. >> and sports is coming up. still ahead, it's being called a big step forward in hiv testing but is it too costly? the feds hit bay area based
6:23pm
wells fargo with a major lawsuit. big bird takes on politics. political analyst larry gersten breaks down confusing presidential polls, as well.
6:24pm
6:25pm
mitt romney show it's not wall street you have to worry about, it's sesame street. >> big bird's appearance in a satirical president obama ad is angering the producers of sesame street. they're demanding the ad be withdrawn, saying they do not endorse political candidates. the obama campaign says it's reviewing the producer's concern. you may remember that gop candidate mitt romney made comments about pbs and big bird and they were the biggest quotes to come out of last week's
6:26pm
debate. >> one day president obama has the lead, the next day mitt romney has the lead. so many polls show very different results. >> so we want to bring in our political analyst. larry, every day it's something different. how do you know who to rely on? >> much of the answer has to do with the way pollsters ask questions, for example. how is the president managing the economy? that's one way. that's different than, is the economy better or worse for you than a year ago. a second potential problem centers on the people polled, likely voters and then there are those who are voting occasionally. guess what? you'll get different results, depending whether they're regular or occasional voters. and there's the matter of polling methodology. some firms contact landlines only. but the better phones will call
6:27pm
cell phone users also. that's important. why? because cell phone users not only make up 30% of the voting universe, but tend to be notably younger. you put those together and you can see what happens. >> thanks so much, larry. there's going to be a lot of polling after thursday's vice presidential debate. how important will that be given the closeness of this race? >> very important. and in a stunning reversal of fortune. her important than the obama-biden team. most believe that the romney candidacy surged after that last week's performance. that's a lot. vice president biden's job is to eat away at that bounce. but the expectations are so low for paul ryan. people aren't expecting a lot. bottom line, given their contrast in character and in values, the outcome very much in doubt. put it together, biden and ryan
6:28pm
should put on quite a show. >> and that's a show we'll be carrying here for you and we'll have comments after. thank you very much, larry. still to come at 6:00, sentencing day for jerry sandusky. ha he said in court today. plus, losing our religion. interesting new research on faith in america. the potential health benefits for a diet rich in tomatoes. and a carcinogen has been seeping under the south bay for decades. the investigation is up next. measures... measure up. money to our schools. "misleading." out here. it. but there's hope. straight to our schools... keeps it there. politicians. yes on thirty-eight.
6:29pm
6:30pm
well, there's no question about it. it's an eye opening discovery. it's nona rural forgotten area. >> and investigation has uncovered higher than expected cancer rates among residents in
6:31pm
a specific part of mountain view. steven stock began digging into the story and now a lot of people are asking some serious questions. >> reporter: that's right, we asked california's cancer registry to see if there were more reported cases of cancer than scientists would normally expect among the population living there. those results are now back. and they show a higher incidence of certain types of cancer. a group known by scientists as nonhodgkin lymphoma. >> here's the report. >> oh, my goodness. >> reporter: we delivered the news that many residents living in this neighborhood long suspected. >> my first reaction was, i was just really extremely sad thinking about the neighborhood people. >> reporter: after exhaustive research and analysis of three decades worth of health data, california's cancer registry found the higher than expected number of people living here
6:32pm
with nonhodgkin lymphoma during 1996 to 2005. >> i was hoping that the statistics would not show this to be true. but when you find out it's true, it's like why do we wait so long to find this out and why respect those responsible polluting parties held more accountable to delivering that message to people that would be impacted. >> reporter: the cancer registry counted the cases of cancers among people living in three different u.s. census blocks. surrounding what's known as the mew, or middlefield ellis super fund site. then compared those cancer rates to similar areas. the super fund site dates back to 1988, when a cleaning solvent was discovered that had been leaked or dumped into the ground by the military and then the semi conductor industry.
6:33pm
>> it's a concern. cancer is a concern to all of us. >> reporter: curt snipes is california's chief of cancer surveillance and research. >> we focus on cancers that are in the past have been -- there's been some report of association between tce exposure and cancer. those three cancers were cancer of kidney, liver and nonhodgkin lymphoma. >> reporter: the registry did find a statistically significant elevation for nonhodgkin lymphoma from 1996 to 2005. there were 31 cases, nearly twice the number that would have been expected. >> i can fully understand why residents in the region might be concerned. that's why we are careful with our analysis. >> reporter: did it surprise you? >> a little bit.
6:34pm
>> reporter: lenny segal has become a resident expert on the toxic tce plum underneath his community. >> as you said, the spike is significant. we just don't know enough to blame it on the tce. what we do know is with all that tce that's underground needs to be cleaned up. >> reporter: the rate of nonhodgkin lymphoma of residents at the site has been trending since 2006. but it has the attention of health officials around the state. >> the cancer registry will continue to monitor the area as new cases come in. >> it didn't take the polluters, it took investigative reporting to do it. now we want to find out more. >> reporter: jane horton wishes she would have had this information sooner, so she and other residents could have made more informed decisions about their health and the risk of
6:35pm
living here. >> at least people should believe alerted that they're in a risk zone for this and what the symptoms are. so they have an opportunity to be more aware, maybe something could be found sooner than later. it's just wrong. and yeah, it does make me mad. >> reporter: california's cancer registry will continue to carefully monitor the health of residents living in and around this area to make sure there is not yet another spike in the number of cancers there. the santa clara county health department has been notified and put the area on its watch list. and the epa has also been notified and is continuing its cleanup efforts. but it could be decades before this entire super fund site is completely cleaned up. >> thank you very much, teastev. >> if you have a tip for us, you can call us or send an e-mail. new at 6:00, we are getting a clearer understanding of a
6:36pm
high profile suspect. the preliminary hearing got under way. he's charged with attempted murder and stealing this yellow lamborghini. investigators think wade was upset because a girl had rejected him. prosecutors say there's evidence people are trying to free wade from the county jail. an attempt to break him out of juvenile hall on his 18th birthday in august was unsuccessful. unrepentant to the end. the former penn state assistant coach was sentenced to essentially a life sentence, no
6:37pm
fewer than 30 years behind bars. 30 will be mandatory. before jerry sandusky was sentenced for 45 counts of sexually abusing ten boys over 15 years, some of his victims spoke out. as did jerry sandusky, repeating some of the statement he read from his cell to penn state radio last night. >> they can treat me as a monster, but they can't take away my heart. in my heart, i know i did not do these alleged disgusting acts. >> his statement today was a masterpiece of denial, self-delusion, untethered from reality and without any acceptance or responsibility. >> now jerry sandusky's attorney did not dispute the motion to declare him a sexual predator, but he will appeal the conviction. it's the feds against the bankers in new york city. prosecutors are suing wells
6:38pm
fargo bank alleging mortgage misconduct. the lawsuit claims that for a decade, wells fargo was reckless and relied on government insurance to back thousands of deficient loans. the government is seeking hundreds of millions in damage. wells fargo denies the allegations, saying it acted in good faith and in compliance with the rules. for the first time in history, the united states does not have a protestant majority. a new study shows the percentage of protestant adults in the u.s. has fallen to 48%. the fastest growing group is americans with no religious affiliation. the drop has long been anticipated and comes at a time when no protestants are on the u.s. supreme court. republicans have their first presidential ticket with no protestant nominee. american voters who describe
6:39pm
themselves as having no religion vote overwhelmingly for democrats. same-day delivery. plus, it's not a gadget, it's not a social network, but it might be the next big thing in silicone valley. do you have any fingernails left? the torture returns. we have highlights from the extra inning thriller for the giants, coming up. good evening, i'm jeff ranieri. the doppler radar shows fall showers offshore. we'll be tracking that and let us know what our best chance of getting any of that is for tonight. it stays cloudy with temperatures in the 60s and 70s. have you heard of the new dialing procedure
6:40pm
6:41pm
for the 408 and 669 area codes? no, what is it? starting october 20, 2012, if you have a 408 or 669 number, you'll need to dial 1 plus the area code plus the phone number for all calls. o.k., but what if i have an 408 number and i'm calling a 408 number? you'll still need to dial 1 plus the area code plus the phone number. so when in doubt, dial it out!
6:42pm
for the first time hiv tests can be bought at a drugstore nationwide with results in about 30 minutes. up until now, this was part of a pilot program. it will help those who don't know if they're hiv positive. it will give those who are reluctant to go to the doctor a way to check their status at home. it costs about $40. but some say it's still too expensive for those that need it the most. okay. a diet that includes tomatoes could help reduce the risk of a stroke. researchers in finland credit an antioxidant in the tomatoes that contribute to that effect.
6:43pm
okay, a little cooler. and i felt, i don't know if i was just mistaken, but it seemed a little humid. >> you know, it was a little humid. so it made the 70s feel like the low 80s. but i must say your hair still looks great. more about the forecast coming up. and i'm dave feldman. coming up in sports, the 49ers are looking for revenge and one player in particular has had sunday circled for quite some time. and the giants have to win or go home. and they're not boarding a flight any time soon. highlights from a nail biter in cincinnati, coming up next.
6:44pm
6:45pm
walmart says it's going to test same-day delivery here in the bay area as soon as late this month. the retailer isn't saying how much walmart to go would cost, but it's tested a $10 fee in other markets. they're also using local stores to fill orders to cut down on cost and reduce shipping. in time, in an effort to offset competition from amazon.com and other online retailers. it's the new hot spot in silicone valley.
6:46pm
>> investors and customers are flocking to this red hot startup. scott budman wraps it up in a box. >> reporter: name the device. laptop, mobile phone, tablet. these days it likely has box on board. box, the company, now big enough for its own conference. 14 million users, with 140,000 customers, including the san francisco giants. >> as you can imagine, box customers go to the playoffs, coincidence? we caused that to happen. >> reporter: box is also growing, pulling in more investment dollars and planning to hire more employees in the months to come. >> because of the new way that we are going after this problem of collaboration and everything in businesses, it's just an incredibly large opportunity. i think we've just scratched the
6:47pm
surface of the types of ways that all these companies can deploy a solution like box. >> reporter: it's one of a number of quickly growing software companies, watching the eye of venture capitalists. >> i can access all the documents on my iphone, laptop, it just doesn't matter. and from a security and manageability standpoint, because the files exist on a cloud, not a device, you don't have the typical security concerns. >> reporter: and while investors speculate when box may go public, they got good news from workday, which raised the range of its planned ipo. it's expected to go public friday. in san francisco, scott budman, nbc bay area news. >> exciting times here in the bay area. >> so information in the cloud now. let's talk about the other clouds lingering around the bay area. here's jeff ranieri. >> a lot more than data stored
6:48pm
up. some rare fall showers. we haven't had to fire this up in a while and there's not too much here with this latest storm system, but the showers getting close 30, 35 miles away from w bodega bay. i know a lot of you are wondering when will we get measurable rainfall. we already had over an inch this year. nothing at all when it comes to fall rainfall. here's some signs of that change. we have chances of showers in the forecast for tomorrow. a second system on friday. and then throughout this fall and winter, el nino watch will continue, which is starting to spell signs of maybe colder and wetter storm systems for november, december and january. right now, temperatures are feeling like fall out here. low 60s. this time last week, we had low 100s at this hour. let's take you outside. at least we're getting the signs of changes coming in.
6:49pm
san jose looks like autumn, with the low cloud cover building up and trying to squeeze out moisture over the hills, but none showing up on the radar at this point. let's bring you back to the maps. the other indication is an expansive, strong system out in the pacific. this may bring showers by friday, but we need to get through this system offshore. it's been lingering for about six days. we think it's going to push to the south over the next 48 hours and that may bring us spotty showers. temperatures will stay on the cooler side with 50s and 60s. may get more humidity in the air for tomorrow. so 60s and 70s may start to feel slightly warmer, as well. and back into the fall pattern for the morning. as we head throughout tonight and into tomorrow morning, most of the showers offshore to the south. by wednesday afternoon, we are looking at the models picking up on showers here the south bay. i think the models are overdoing
6:50pm
